For Sunday’s writing assignment, you’ll conduct some on-the-spot research related to one key concern you identified in your ‘Where I’m From’ assignment. Specifically, you’ll find two sources: one that tends to agree with your point of view.and one that tends to oppose your point of view. You’ll then write a summary and respond to reflective questions about each. To support your best work, read and view the materials you’ll find below and be sure to incorporate these skills into your summaries.For this week’s research, Google your key search terms and look for journalistic sources from reputable newspapers (Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, for example) or look for scholarly sources from university websites, for example. You may use Wikipedia for background information, but not for the sources you summarize. In all, look for credible sources with minimal bias.View Shaun McLeod’s short video and take notes about what to include in your summaries. Your summaries should begin with the author and title of the work you’re summarizing along with the main claim or primary point the author is making. You’ll then explain the key points the authors make to support their primary points, carefully explaining so that a reader who hasn’t read your sources can understand them.Use the following formats to cite each key point from the author’s argumentwhich you include in your summaries. In MLA, in-text citations follow the sentences in which source information is found. The period always goes after the in-text citation, not after the sentence (Larson, par. 1).
